563. To ask the Minister for Health when the implementation of the €10 cap on hospital car park charges will be introduced at Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital car parks in Drogheda, County Louth which is one of the most expensive in the country; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [2768/20]
In 2018, the Minister for Health requested the HSE to conduct a review of all hospital car parking charges, including Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital, Drogheda, County Louth, with a view to establishing clear national guidelines in the area. The Review process included consultation with key stakeholders, including patient advocates. The Department and HSE are currently liaising on an implementation plan to accompany the Review report.
